Christmas will be upon us before we know it. How about stitching some tiny scented sachets and selling them at the school fete. I filled these with 'Unstoppables'. You will find them in the laundry section of your local supermarket. They are intended to be used as 'in wash scent boosters' and one pack will enable you to make hundreds of sachets. I made mine a little bigger than a 2p piece but you can of course make them any size or shape you like. If you make bigger ones then stuff them with wadding or cotton wool and then add a teaspoon of the fragrant pellets. I am finding that a little goes a very long way. The sachets are great for adding a little fragrance to the laundry cupboard or knicker drawer

I have got an embroidery bug really quite bad. If it can be embroidered I am now eyeing it up. I spent yesterday afternoon adding a little bit of embroidery to the legs and back pocket of an old pair of jeans. They look rather nice too so I can see that I will be attacking all my old jeans with a needle and thread.
